This days, installing an application on Linux is a peace of cake. In this tutorial I will show you how to install the latest Nvidia Drivers, 310.19, on Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal and Linux Mint 14. This installation tutorial may work for Debian Sid, the latest version of Knoppix, Pinguy OS and other Debian based nu distros.
This software was created fast after the launch of steam for Linux.
For a succesfully installation, follow these steps:
1. Add the PPA:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa
2. Update the system:
sudo apt-get update
3. Install the nvidia packages:
sudo apt-get install nvidia-current nvidia-settings
This is all, have fun gaming.
following this tutorial, I installed drivers from xorg-edgers/ppa and when I run glxgears, it says:
NVIDIA: API mismatch: the NVIDIA kernel module has version 304.43,
but this NVIDIA driver component has version 304.88. Please make
sure that the kernel module and all NVIDIA driver components
have the same version.
what is the problem?
I already have 310.14 (experimental) but it said the driver to be installed is a 304 package which is last current. So no 310.19 driver.
